The ancient Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Christian quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City is identified as the place of both the crucifixion of Jesus, and where he was buried and rose again.

It has been the most important pilgrimage site for Christians all over the world since before the 12th century.

Here, photographer Sliman Khader of Flash90 takes a photograph of the two-room Aedicule chapel inside the church.

The Aedicule preserves the location of Christ’s tomb, and also contains the Angel’s Stone, which is believed to be a fragment of the large stone that sealed the tomb of Jesus.
